Don’t fall victim to the 90 day lock-in curse

Don’t fall victim to the 90 day lock-in curse: Marketing LockInCurse

With year-end fast approaching and budgets front of mind, PRgloo is on hand to help comms managers make the easy choice when it comes to reviewing contracts and other subscriptions.

Heck, with all the work our developers have been doing to make PRgloo a one-stop shop for delivering all your communications needs, we might even be able to save you some dosh, by doing away with some of your other subscriptions altogether. 

We’ve got a stack of new tools on the PRgloo platform, including tools to replace Mailchimp, tools to help with social media scheduling and of course our fantastic template and bespoke newsrooms. 

But our No 1 complaint from potential new clients interested in moving over to the PRgloo platform is the draconian contract lock-in periods of some providers. Here at PRgloo we don’t have any silly tricks like lock-in contracts. Instead, we take care of all data migration so you don't have to and we’re happy to buy customers out of their existing contracts. With a 97% retention rate we're happy to make that investment in you.  

By the way, here's what one of our customers says about us: 

“I’ve worked with numerous systems from using clunky spreadsheets through to other media platforms and PRgloo is by far my platform of choice. 

“It’s simple to use, sleek in design and captures everything I need in one easy to use system. From logging calls, creating briefing notes, drafting lines to take, disseminating press releases to journalists, newsletters to stakeholders, linking press cuttings and creating performance reports, it really is a one-stop-comms shop.

And best of all is the service. I’ve previously had the experience of signing up to providers who promptly disappear once the contract is signed, and then when you try to move on, you get trapped in ridiculously lengthy lock-in periods. In contrast, the team at PRgloo are super responsive and just generally make my life easier. They took the hassle out of moving across to their platform. Nothing is too difficult for them and best of all they take onboard any feedback to continually enhance and improve the platform. I for one can’t wait to try the new social media tools.”
